Setting Up Quickbooks Online

Setting up QuickBooks correctly is crucial for accurate future information. This process parallels manual accounting record setup, which can be especially complex if transitioning mid-year.

Key considerations include choosing the accounting method, establishing the chart of accounts, and addressing beginning balances. An expert can streamline this setup and installation, ensuring a seamless transition. Additionally, our team provides comprehensive training to optimize your accounting staff's performance.

As for costs, we tailor quotes based on your specific business and accounting needs, always mindful of fitting within your budget. It's important to note that both installation and training require time, time that could be better spent managing your business.

During the setup, we conduct a thorough evaluation of your software and accounting requirements, recommend necessary software and hardware, and handle the complete installation process. This encompasses chart of accounts configuration, including payroll, accounts receivable, inventory, and accounts payable. We also determine your QuickBooks starting date and load your account balances from that point.

Furthermore, we assist in compiling a comprehensive list of items sold, covering services, inventory parts, non-inventory parts, additional charges, and sales taxes. We input outstanding accounts receivable and accounts payable details, as well as reconcile bank balances and outstanding checks and deposits.

To ensure accuracy, we print a trial balance for comparison with your previous system. We then transfer transactions since your starting date into QuickBooks. Finally, we offer in-depth training to meet your accounting, management, and tax needs.

Our ongoing services include follow-up training sessions and regular reviews of your QuickBooks data, aiding in tax preparation and management reporting.
